This beautiful and ancient white popcorn produces two to three, 4-6 inches long ears per stalk. It was originally found in a pottery container dated to be 600 to 1000 years old. This pot was found in the Burro Mountains of Grant County, New Mexico in the 1960s/1970s by Frank Tatsch and was originally grown out by him. The popcorn is believed to be descended from an ancient highland popcorn indigenous to Mexico called Palomero Tolequeno. This Palomero popcorn is nearly extinct and was used in Aztec rain and war ceremonies and is one of the ancestors to almost all of our popcorn in the United States and this Burro Mountain is a strain grown in the Burro Mountains centuries ago and was considered once extinct until its discovery in the pot. This is its first time being offered anywhere and the original seed stock came from corn collector and Seeds of Preservation Independence (SOPI) President, Stephen Smith of Kentucky.

What are the pros? tasty and interesting

What are the cons? limited germination

Review:

We bought this corn because we were interested in it's history - 600 year-old corn sounds cool. It was a small packet of seed and not all of what we planted germinated, but what did come up did well. We make popcorn in a pot with a lid so it worked out fine. Seems like it requires a longer time with a higher temperature to get the kernels to pop, therefore we use coconut oil to keep the oil from burning. The popped kernels are small, but they are flavorful and tender; they have a high 'pop rate' (very few unpopped kernels).

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Kernels almost to small to eat

Review:

This was really easy to grow. It didn't need alot of intervention. I got 3-4 cobs per stalk. The down side was that the kernals are so small it's almost a waste of time. I couldn't even use my air popper because the kernals just flew out as soon as you turned it on.
